Current Mock Trial Case Information
The 2009-2010 mock trial involves a criminal Murder charge that has been brought against a defendant implicated in the killing of a business partner. Below is the official American Mock Trial Association summary of the case we will be using this year:
"In a first for Midlands, three entrepreneurs joined forces to create Trifecta Entertainment, a major movie studio. After some initial growing pains, Trifecta was about to embark on its most profitable year. But then one of the partners went missing. Foul play was suspected and then police discovered the missing partner’s corpse buried at the base of Calkins Cliffs. The two remaining partners have been indicted for murder."
